13 Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise.
14 Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.
15 And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.
16 Therefore, confess your sins to one another and pray for one another, that you may be healed.The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.
This is such a good reminder to pray when we suffer and rejoice when we are cheerful. But I find it interesting that James reminds us to confess our sins to one another and to pray for one another. Our society confessing our sins to one other isn't something we do naturally. (Or is that just me?!?!)
